Masked men with guns sought in Macon shooting

Masked gunmen opened fire late Wednesday on an occupied car and stuck a shotgun into a house near the juncture of Eisenhower Parkway and Broadway.

A man living at 2324 Chappell St. told Bibb County sheriff’s deputies that a tall man in a ski mask and khaki pants opened a screen door and waved a shotgun in the room as another gunman stood behind him about 10:30 p.m., according to a news release from the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office.

The gunmen backed out the door and fled as the resident heard a gunshot.

About 30 minutes earlier at the same house, another man, who was waiting outside in his Cadillac after dropping off his girlfriend, told investigators four or five black men, dressed in black with bandanas over their faces, came up to his car and one of them tried to open the side door, the release stated.

The driver noticed two of them had guns, and he heard a bullet hit the rear of the car as he drove off with his children with him in the car.

He later found two bullet holes in the rear of his car.

Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 877-68-CRIME.
